@MaulikH I've got one for you. In the recent company open list when switching companies would the engineers consider changing the font color to match our company scheme or at the very least make them alternating shades. With 10 and counting it is sometimes difficult to discern which company to open.

Hey there, John-Pero.

That's a great question. Our engineers are constantly working on updates to make working in QuickBooks a simple and easy process. That recommendation sounds great. I'll be sure to input some feedback on my end, so hopefully its a feature you get in a future update.

I have Quickbooks Desktop Pro 2020 and under Edit, Preferences, Desktop View there is no "Company Color Scheme".  Whatever the colors are now they are killing my eyes and on some pages the color of the print blends into the background and you can't even read it. HELP!!!!!

I'm here to help you figure this out, @UpstatePeeps.

 

Let's get Company Color Scheme option back in your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) Pro 2020 by doing some troubleshooting steps. Thus, you can change the color as soon as possible. 

 

To begin, I'd recommend updating your QBDT account to the latest release (R5). This way, your is up to date and fix some issues that you've encounter like unable to see the color scheme. 

 

Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Help menu and select Update QuickBooks Desktop.
  2. Click the Update Now button.
  3. Tap Get updates to start the download. 

 

       4. Restart the computer and install the new release. 

       5. Press F2 on your keyboard to see the release note and version. 

 

 

You may also refer to this page: Update QuickBooks Desktop to the latest release.

 

Once done, please go back to the Desktop View page to verify if the Company Color Scheme option is visible. 

 

 

If the issue continues, let's run the Verify/Rebuild tools. This tool scans your company file for issues and fixes them right away. You can follow these easy instructions below. 

 

To Verify:

 

  1. Go to the Window menu and select Close All.
  2. Then, go to the File menu.
  3. Select Utilities.
  4. Click Verify Data.

 

To Rebuild:

 

  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. Select Utilities.
  3. Click Rebuild Data.

 

 

 You can also check this article for more detailed steps: Verify and Rebuild Data in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

I've also added some pages about how to adjust the view preferences like font, sizing, and other display issues. 

 

 

Notify me if you have follow-up questions about your account. It's my pleasure to help. Take care always.

Hi!

I got QB updated to the most current version.  The company color scheme selection is still missing. So I did the verify data and there were no problems detected with my data.

Let's perform some steps to get the imported invoice template working in QuickBooks, Lemmerot. 

 

I appreciate you for performing the steps provided by my colleagues. To better isolate this one, let's try opening another company file to check if you're having a problem with only one file and not the program itself. Let me show you how:

  1. In your QuickBooks, go to the File menu at the top left.
  2. Choose Close Company.
  3. In the No Company Open window, click the drop-down arrow in the Open a sample file icon.
  4. Choose a sample file and click on it.

Then, change the colors in QuickBooks by following the steps below: 

  1. Click Edit, on the top grey menu bar. 
  2. Select Preferences
  3. Tap Desktop View.
  4. Once there, look for the "Company File Color Scheme" option and choose your color

We have a range of color options to make each company file unique. If the same something happens, there may be a damaged component on the software. We can repair your QuickBooks Desktop to fix this one.

 

If the problem persists, I'd suggest contacting our Technical Support Team. They'll pull up your account in a secure environment and investigate what's causing this issue. You may send a message via chat, call us at a time convenient to you, or we’ll get in touch with you instead. To ensure we address your concern, our representatives are available from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM on weekdays and 6:00 AM - 3:00 PM on Saturdays, PST. See our support hours and types for more details about this one.

 

Visit our QuickBooks Help Articles page for more insight s about managing your business in your software.

 

Feel free to update us after contacting our support or performing the solutions, as I want to ensure this is resolved for you. Please reply to this post and I'll get back to you. Take care always.

My Company File Color Scheme won't stay the color I choose. Each time I reopen Quickbooks it is back to the Pink color. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks for following this thread, @adri_rose_1996. I want to help ensure this issue about the file color scheme gets resolved. 

 

You can follow the steps to update QuickBooks to the latest release, then run the Verify and Rebuild tools shared by my peers above. 

 

If you already did and the issues persist, I'd recommend contacting our Technical Support team to help you check and identify what's causing this to happen. That way, they can also submit a request to investigate the issue if necessary. 

 

I'm always around here to help you with some more of your concerns. Have a great day ahead!
